Thousands protest against illegal forceful occupation of lands by Bahria Town

KARACHI: Hundreds of thousands people staged a protest sit-in against Baharia Town  off the Super Highway. The Sindh Action Committee, an alliance of nationalist parties in the province, gave the call for the protest against the alleged hostile takeover of some goth lands by the Bahria Town management.

The committee comprises Sindhi nationalist leaders, including Qadir Magsi, Jalal Mehmood Shah, Ayaz Latif Palijo and others. The Sindh Indigenous Rights Alliance, which has led several such protests, supported the call too. They blamed the Sindh government for supporting the illegal eviction of poor peasants and villagers from their ancestral lands.

The protest was attended by thousands of people along with residents of nearby villages, who asserted that they are being forced to give up their lands. They were protesting and chanting slogans against the purportedly “forceful eviction” from their ancestral lands in the vicinity.

Later, an angry mob reportedly breached the barricaded gate and entered the housing society. The mob set fire to the vehicles and the main gate, and also ransacked the showrooms and banks. Whereas SAC has condemned the incident of violence and said that it was done by some miscreants and should be taken into task.
